Nestled on 300 wooded acres along the shores of Little Island Pond, Camp Runels is celebrating 83 summers of helping girls become confident and independent leaders with the support of our caring staff. Our staff comes from around the world, bringing a wide variety of experience and abilities, and many are former camper who return to share the magic of camp with a new generation. The camp program is designed collaboratively by girls with the staff to create an exciting, fun and safe experience for everyone. All programs include swimming, boating, campfires, games, outdoor cooking, crafts and all that camp has to offer. Girls may also attend an optional overnight on Wednesday nights if they are interested. For additional information: email or call (617) 350-8335.
Hours of operation: 9am - 4pm, extended care available: 7:30am - 9am ($10) and 4pm - 6pm ($15)
Each day girls begin with an opening Flag Ceremony and singing. Girl Scouts then proceed to enjoy fun activities which include arts & crafts, swimming, fun sports, and working on various Girl Scout badges and patches. The girls end their day with the traditional Flag Ceremony.
About the Director
Sarah “Fluke” Leshay is the Camp Runels Director. This is Fluke’s fourth summer directing Camp Runels and her eleventh summer working at Girl Scout camp. Her favorite memories as a girl are of final campfire at Girl Scout camp. She loves to sing camp songs, swim in the lake, and get messy in arts and crafts while at camp. Fluke believes that Girl Scout camp gives girls a chance to try new activities in a safe and supportive environment, as well as helping to cultivate lifelong friendships.
